    2004 GTX LE Engine replacement worth it?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a 2004 GTX LE 4 Tec that was essentially free, but it has a blown engine. I paid a very nominal value for it.

    I was wondering if it's worth it to get a new engine and get it running? It looks like on a few sites about 2500 to 3000 would do it. All other parts are in great condition and the machine is in great physical shape.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Welcome aboard GH

    you have to compare the book value of the ski against the repair costs ( and include labor, you don't work for free do you?)

    A ski in good physical condition is a plus, but you also need to consider the jetpump, the console and the bottom of the hull

    also consider that if the engine has core damage, it's going to be more expensive then you originally thought

    Its a toss up as a perfectly good running 2004 in my market with an aftermarket motor is going to have a tough time getting $4k this time of year

    lets see some pics

    and what's the trailer look like?
